Volm Announces Acquisition Of Atech, A Colorado Distribution Facility

Volm Companies, Inc., an industry leader in providing the highest quality packaging and equipment solutions to the fresh produce industry, has announced that it has acquired the business of Atech, Incorporated in Monte Vista, Colorado.

Atech has been a long-time and valuable partner for Volm, representing the Volmpack line of equipment with a local sales and service model.  Over the past few years, Atech had also been partnering with Volm in the distribution of packaging in the area.

With the acquisition, Volm will occupy the current Atech facility, a 7,200-square foot warehouse set on approximately 9 acres.  Through the acquisition, Volm plans to invest in resources and improvements at the location to offer a higher level of direct service for its customers in the San Luis Valley area as well as provide for a regional Colorado hub to service those in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

“This purchase allows us to increase our presence in one of the largest fresh potato growing region in the United States.  We believe that this higher “touch” frequency with our customers will help us better understand the needs and, ultimately, be able to offer a Volm total solution service to this very important area” cites Daniel Mueller, President & CEO.  He adds, “Having a physical presence makes sense for Volm because it makes sense for our customers.  We are very excited about this decision and certainly wish to thank Atech for their many years of representing Volm in this area.”

Vice President of Sales & Marketing Matt Alexander adds “In the last year, we’ve built a new, state-of-the-art facility in Pasco, Washington and opened the doors of Volm Canada in Ancaster, Ontario and Volm Mexico, in Mexicali, Mexico.  We feel it’s important that our customers across North America know our level of commitment to providing them with the level of service they deserve.  The added presence will now allow us to make this possible in this region.”

The Colorado facility is located at 1100 S County Rd 3 E, Monte Vista, Colorado.
